sounds like your tie rods or ball joints are starting to go. If you jack the front of the ground and move the wheel left and right, and there is any slop, its your tie rods, if its up and down, its your ball joint. If your wheel turns alittle without moving the steering rack, sounds like a loose bolt someplace. If the wheel shakes excessively it's probably a bad bearing in the bottom of the steering column.

is there a rack from a mk3 or any other car that i can use!?or some steering things!?
oh,and when the car has the proper alignment,if you look from the front of the car,you can see that the left(passenger) wheel is a litle bit "out-going"!!and in the machine,it says that its all forward,but that wheel,is just aiming out!!!what can this be!?
